10 Cute Baby Girl Names Inspired By Your Granny and Grandad

1. Betsy

A shorter version of Elizabeth, Betsy is a very cute alternative if you want something short and sweet. It is Hebrew and means “Pledged to God”.

2. Edith

How gorgeous is this little old lady name meaning “Prosperous”. Totally underrated in my opinion!

3. Loretta

Often nicknamed Lori, this Italian name is not overly common but could be so beautiful!

4. Margaret

A Persian name meaning “Pearl”, there are so many variations you could use; Marge, Maggie, Gretta and they are all adorable!

5. Ethel

This is definitely one that conjures a picture of an old lady playing bingo but I can also imagine it being gorgeous if it made a comeback with the younger generation!

6. Dorothy

A Greek name meaning “God’s gift” which could be shortened to Dot or Dotty which are super cute for your little woman!

7. Mabel

If it’s good enough for Russel Brand, it’s good enough for me! It has English origins and means “Lovable”.

8. Mae

Mae has become very popular in recent years as the second half of a double barrel name but would be fab as a name in its own right.

9. Ida

This one is so cute! A cute German name which works on the young and old.

10. Florence

Jennifer Maguire (Zamparelli) named her daughter Florence which I imagine will increase its popularity and it means “Blossom” which is a really cute meaning!
